How long do we have to wait? Official or Unofficial?


It’s 12:00 noon on Friday the 13th, ten (10) days after the Greene County Elections, and the morons at the Greene County Board of Elections STILL HAVEN’T POSTED THE FINAL RESULTS OF THE NOVEMBER 3RD ELECTIONS. THE LINK TO THE “OFFICIAL” RESULTS STILL SHOWS “UNOFFICIAL” RESULTS. WAKE UP GUYS!


WE WANT TO KNOW NOW!!!

So far, SILENCE!

So far, SILENCE!

Today, on Veterans Day, we claim to be celebrating the men and women still among us who served to preserve our dignity, rights, and freedoms. What “dignity”? What “rights”? What “freedoms”? Today, on Veterans Day, we slap our veterans in the face and kick them in the ass! Let’s ask our elected officials and politicians Why? that is!

A “Commander-in-Chief” who talks big about “We’ll keep fighting” but who has never served. Politicians who collect the money and get the benefits but can’t stick to the real issues. Media that sells ratings rather than inform us. We’ve forgotten what it is to be a real hero because we get fed a “hero-a-day”!

She Weeps for Us!

She Weeps for Us!

A week after the elections and we still don’t know the final results! Absentee ballots are not yet counted!!!

If the craziness and nastiness of election campaigns and the anxiety centering on the questionable results of local elections were not enough, our paid officials can’t even get their announcements right. It’s no wonder people don’t vote. But how can this country criticize other nations’ voting practices when our own is in such a sorry state?

For example, It’s now a week after the November 3, elections, and the final results are not posted (absentee ballots are STILL not counted).

The Greene County Board of Elections, Marie Metzler  (mmetzler@discovergreene.com) and Brent Bogardus (bbogardus@discovergreene.com), commissioners, can’t even decide whether the results on the Greene County Board of Elections website are “Official” or “Unofficial”. Who would think to look on the Green County Employee Info page for the November 3, 2015, “Official”/”Unofficial” election results, anyway. And they don’t tell us when the results, official or unofficial, will be final.

The Greene County Board of Elections page link reads: “Official Election Results/November 3, 2015” but the link goes to “Unofficial” results and those unofficial results are on the “greeneemployeeinfo” page. Go figure! And we trust those guys with running our elections?

When will they decide? Official or Unofficial?

When will they decide? Official or Unofficial?

And we mentioned last week that we expected the Albany County Board of Elections to be dragging their feet. Commissioners Matthew J. Clyne (D) and Rachel L. Bledi (R) don’t bother to provide their e-mail addresses. Do you think they’re interested in hearing from you about the outrageous delay in getting absentee ballots counted and the final results out? Coeymans will have to wait until after November 13, 2015, to learn the results. (Well, the good news is you still have time to leave town!) By the way, that’s Friday the 13th. Does that give the results away?

Albany will Count the Coeymans Absentee Ballots on Friday the 13th!

Albany will Count the Coeymans Absentee Ballots on Friday the 13th!

What’s the delay?!?!

We know Albany County is a Democrap sumphole and is run by a bunch of political machine backroom cronies, but really, do they actually need 10 days to count and tally absentee ballots? Where are we anyway? In Afghanistan?

Our Board of Elections will Let Us Know our Fate on Friday the 13th.

Our Board of Elections will Let Us Know our Fate
on Friday the 13th.

Be Afraid. Be VERY Afraid!
But there’s still time to leave town, people!

Dead Children and Gun Control…Out of Focus!

While Cuomo is eroding the rights of American citizens and patriots in New York, his bedfellow in Washington, Obama, is promising rights to illegal immigrants!

Obama_Immigration_Policy

The Illegals’ Choice!
The Arriba! President

Obama’s Got Something for Everyone
(but can’t deliver anything)

You're the target!

You’re the target!

The United States Congress Took More Than 90 Days to Pass Funding to Aid those Suffering from the Rampage of Hurricane Sandy…It Took Mere Days to Push Through the TARP Bailout funding for the Banks and Corporations Whose Dishonest Practices Caused the Recession We’re Still In. Where Do You Think this Government’s Priorities Are? Do You Really Think That King Obama or the Crooks in Congress Thought to Postpone Aid to Israel and Divert those Millions a Day to Americans Suffering the After-effects of Sandy? Where do WE, as citizens,  actually figure in Big Brother’s  worldview? Not only are the Coeymanazis eroding your rights but the unconstitutional, immoral criminality appears to be trickling down from the New York State Legislature and our Mafioso Governor, Andrew Cuomo! Read on, if you dare…


You may want to print out a copy of this article and send it to Governor Cuomo and to your elected legislators (state and federal) as an statement of protest! Send a link of this article to your relatives, friends, neighbors so that they also know the true facts. Thank you!


Closer to Home, Our Darling Governor Andrew Cuomo Has Been Trying to Collect Brownie Points by Harvesting Political Capital over the Bodies of Dead Children.

(Bad Move, Andy! Your Popularity Plummeted a Serious 15 Points!)

The Face of Attitude.Cuomo to Citizens & the Constitution: Go F*** Yourselves!

The Face of Indifferent Arrogance.
Cuomo to Citizens & the Constitution:
Go F*** Yourselves!

Andrew Cuomo and His DINOs (Democrats In Name Only; there’s not an iota of democracy in them) is a political whore and worse still, he’s turned prostitute: He’s selling principle for politics!

Here’s how:

It looks like Andy Cuomo can’t wait to become President (Yes! That’s Cuomo’s latest crazy wet dream.)  before trashing the United States Constitution, Cuomo rushes the SAFE law through the rubber-stampers in the New York State Legislature, trashing the 2nd Amendment and the right to own firearms, using the imagery of dead children, not logic, to bypass any public input. IMPEACH CUOMO and give the DUMBASS RUBBER-STAMP LEGISLATORS the BOOT!

Of course the dimwit liberals and the pablum-puking bleeding hearts are going to say, “Great! Who needs guns anyway?” Of course, the police and law enforcement are just creaming their jeans at the thought of citizens without defense! But the real point is this: non-criminals obey the law and acquire guns and ammunition lawfully. It’s the criminals who will get all the guns and ammunition they need by whatever means necessary–and it’s the criminals who kill people! If the police and other law enforcement were doing their jobs they would be catching the criminals and seizing the illegal firearms. But no, that’s not in the plan, instead they’re out on the streets harassing and coercing generally law-abiding citizens and dragging them into court on…traffic violations and for smoking weed or some old-fashioned domestic ruckus. Just read the police blotters.

Forget the so-called War on Drugs–it was and continues to be a smoke screen– (they know where the crack houses are and where the dealers are but use them as bait for the dumbasses who drive thru the areas. After all, it’s the dumbasses who get stopped, it’s the dumbasses who have the cars to impound, the assets to seize, and it’s the dumbasses who will hire the defense lawyers at their own expense (the drug dealers don’t usually have cars, run like hell and get away, don’t have assets, and get public defenders!)).

Cuomo's got a fish story for you...and I have a bridge to sell you.

Cuomo’s got a fish story for you…and I have a bridge to sell you.

And talking about traffic tickets, our darling NYS governor has yet another citizen-hating scheme to cover the state’s crazy spending:

traffic ticketCuomo now is telling the Judicial Branch, the Courts, how to decide in traffic cases. In other words, Andrew Cuomo, the Executive Branch, has already commandeered the wussies in our State Legislature to dump the 2nd Amendment rights of New York citizens, and now is violating another well-established–or so we were taught to believe–concept of American freedom: the Separation of Powers! The Executive branch (governor, attorney general, district attorneys, police and other law enforcement), was to be separate from the Legislative and Judicial branches. This ensured the necessary “checks and balances.” But now, Cuomo is instructing judges not to plea bargain traffic violations such as speeding tickets, and wants to impose mandatory fines and force judges to collect money for the state. Of course, his office denies that this will cost local government anything because they will be free to impose surcharges, in addition. This is a direct violation of the doctrine of separation of powers and the principle of “checks and balances.” It’s a total smokescreen and is designed to squeeze even more money out of citizens for a totally bankrupt and corrupt government in Albany. IMPEACH CUOMO and the career politicians before they start drawing their outrageous pensions!

its outright theft legislation

New York State’s Robbing You Of Your Rights!

We have previously published an interesting article on town and village courts and how ignorant the justices are and how primitive the justice (I shudder to use that term when referring to these kangaroo courts) meted out. Read Justice in Name Only: Town and Village Courts for a real eye-opening exposé of the town and village court system in New York.

I don’t know about you but I am offended by the government’s jumping over dollars to pick up pennies, and digging further into my pockets to offset shoddy management!

But the disgusting hypocrisy and immoral deceit doesn’t stop there, Cuomo has plans for the most despicable practices in the state: abortion!

But First Let’s Do A Little Quiz…

Quiz Question: Which of the above are children?

Quiz Question: Which of the above are children?

Answer: All of them are, or were, before the abortionist got to them!

Putting the murder of children in some perspective, let’s look at some real statistics and leave the politics and the emotional flooding out of the picture, just for a moment. Consider these numbers:

Ceaselessly in the news and on the politicians’ lips: 20 children killed in Newtown, CT (and 6 adults). But is that in perspective?

Now compare that with:
United States Abortion Statistics
54,559,615 abortions 1973–2011

Reported abortions in the United States, by year

The Alan Guttmacher Institute (a special affiliate to Planned Parenthood), which actively collects the abortion data directly from providers.  All numbers reported are voluntary; there are no laws requiring abortionists to report to any national agency the numbers of abortions they perform. 2009-2011 are estimates of 1,212,400 annually.

The Alan Guttmacher Institute (a special affiliate to Planned Parenthood), which actively collects the abortion data directly from providers. All numbers reported are voluntary; there are no laws requiring abortionists to report to any national agency the numbers of abortions they perform. 2009-2011 are estimates of 1,212,400 annually.

In the United States in 2011 more than 1,200,000 (that’s one million two hundred thousand) abortions were reported.

Need some more figures on abortion? We’ll be happy to satisfy your curiosity:

Americans’ views concerning abortion:

  • 79% do not support the current abortion-on-demand policy, saying abortion should be legal only in some circumstances (68%), or illegal in all circumstances (11%). (Marist Poll, December 2011)
  • 78% believe that women who have abortions commonly experience moderately severe to very severe negative emotional reactions to abortion. ( Medical Science Monitor, 2003)
  • 95% of women want to be informed of all risks of a medical procedure; 69% want to be informed of all alternatives. ( Journal of Medical Ethics, July 2006)
  • 64% of women who experienced one or more abortions “felt pressured by others” to have the abortion. (Medical Science Monitor, Oct. 2004)

So you ask yourself, Why do women have abortions?

  • 74% say having a baby would interfere with work, school, or other responsibilities.
  • 73% say they cannot afford to have a child.
  • 48% say they do not want to be a single parent, or have relationship problems with husband or partner.
  • Less than 2% say they became pregnant as a result of rape or incest.

(Source: The Alan Guttmacher Institute, Perspective on Sexual & Reproductive Health, Sept. 2005)

Those are some mightily compelling reasons to kill a child, wouldn’t you agree?

And I’d like to repeat: Those are the reported, official figures. The Chicago Tribune did a study and found some very scary facts: 

“A great many abortions go unreported. In a recent report, a state system for monitoring abortions in Illinois reports that as many as 17,000 of the procedures may go unreported each year, according to the Chicago Tribune. The Chicago Tribune newspaper has released the details of a new investigative report revealing the number of abortions in the state has been massively underreported. Those numbers include six women who have died from botched abortions and 4,000 who were injured.”

“State abortion records full of gaps. Thousands of procedures not reported to health department. ”

(Source: June 16, 2011 by Megan Twohey, Chicago Tribune. The Tribune found: “State regulators have documented between 7,000 and 17,000 fewer abortions a year than a national research group found in Illinois.”)

The dismal statistics for New York, not New York state, New York City read like science fiction:

“2009 statistics for abortions in New York City found that “87,273 abortions in that year, meaning that 41 percent of all pregnancies that didn’t end in miscarriage were ended by abortions,” Lipsky explains. “In some ZIP codes and among African-Americans, the abortion rate reaches a ghastly 60 percent.

[In that same report: “For every 1,000 African-American babies born in the city that year, 1,448 were aborted. To the publication of these numbers the mayor [Michael Bloomberg] stood mute.” Does this sound like ethnic cleansing to you?]

(Source: “Andrew Cuomo’s Thirst for Killing More Babies in Abortions”, Dave Andrusko (Washington, DC: LifeNews.com (1/28/13))

Now, let’s look at some statistics about guns and gun deaths:

Mortality Figures for 2011 (US only)

(Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,  Deaths: Final Data for 2010, table 10, 11 Adobe PDF file [PDF – 3.1 MB])

All homicides

  • Number of deaths: 16,259
  • Deaths per 100,000 population: 5.3

Firearm homicides

  • Number of deaths: 11,078
  • Deaths per 100,000 population: 3.6

Mortality 2011

All injury deaths

  • Number of deaths: 180,811
  • Deaths per 100,000 population: 58.6

Motor vehicle traffic deaths

  • Number of deaths: 33,687
  • Deaths per 100,000 population: 10.9

All poisoning deaths

  • Number of deaths: 42,917
  • Deaths per 100,000 population: 13.9

All firearm deaths

  • Number of deaths: 31,672
  • Deaths per 100,000 population: 10.3

Compare to 1,200,000+ reported abortions in the US in 2011!

So, my point is this: Looking at what the Gutterman Institute study found as the reasons women have abortion and the official abortion figures for 2011, and comparing those figures (for example, 1,200,000+ abortions in 2011) with the firearm homicide figures for the same period (11,078 homicides) and the figures for motor vehicle deaths (33,687) and all firearm deaths (31,672), simple reasoning would say that if we proactively ban or want to control firearms because of the deaths they cause, we should be just as willing to ban or increase control over motor vehicles! After all, motor vehicle deaths in 2011 exceeded all deaths caused by firearms (self-inflicted, murder, accidents). And what is the next step? Background checks for new car purchases? Registration of gas purchases?

And, when you compare all deaths by injury in the US in 2011 (180,811) with the number of reported deaths by intentional abortion (killing the child)  in that same period (1,200,000+ children), you really have to ask yourselves: “What is the big stink about 20 children being killed in Newtown, CT, and is it really fair to misuse that event politically to unlawfully deprive citizens of a constitutionally granted right?”

I am not a callous animal and I’m not trying to minimize the moral wrong or emotional effects of the Newtown, CT, tragedy. I empathize with those parents and the community just as much as I do with Iraqi, Afganistani, Egyptian, Mexican victims of insanity and crime. But the absolute and statistical  numbers speak louder than I could ever attempt to do!

And so, we make a full circle back to deprivation of real rights and the interference of mindless criminal politicians to misuse events for their own agendas.

The reality is this: We have crazies on the streets because we threw them all out of the asylums a couple of decades ago. We have crazies on the streets because we send immature young men off to fight illicit oil wars and then abandon them when they come home nutz and with PTSD. We have crazies on the street because we elect them and put them in powerful positions and not in padded cells!

They all should be in an institution!

Your Rights Crying Out for Liberty!

It’s the crazies in government who are trying to tell us thinking, rational citizens that it’s not the inability of law enforcement to find and seize illegal firearms in the hands of gangs and criminals, nor the inability of law enforcement to stop the trafficking of ammunition for those illegal firearms, nor the inability of law enforcement to stop the influx of illegal weapons into this country…what they’re telling us is that those citizens who would obey the law anyway and are doing so right now, it’s those citizens who will be subjected to more intense scrutiny and tougher regulation! Go figure!

In fact, official government statistics collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and published in the weekly Mortality and MobidityWeekly Report (August 6, 2010 / 59(30);957) actually show a decline in firearm deaths in the period of 1979-2007!

The figure above shows death rates for the three leading causes of injury death in the United States during 1979-2007. In 2007, the three leading causes of injury deaths in the United States were motor vehicle traffic, poisoning, and firearms. The age-adjusted death rate for poisoning more than doubled from 1979 to 2007, in contrast to the age-adjusted death rates for motor vehicle traffic and firearms, which decreased during this period. From 2006 to 2007, the age-adjusted poisoning death rate increased 6%, whereas the motor vehicle traffic death rate decreased 4%, and the firearms death rate did not change.

But all the political rhetoric and misinformation, and the misuse of a tragedy to push through more controls over citizens is totally unjustifiable given the scientific information and the government’s own numbers! If you want to increase control over firearms the government will logically have to do the same for automobiles, since they kill more people every year than firearms!

A traditional business facing extinction?

A traditional business facing extinction?

It’s also those crazies in government who are now telling our judges, as useless as most of them are, how to judge cases, how to interpret the law! Why? Because Mr Andrew Cuomo thinks that they are not sending enough fine-money to Albany and keeping too much for the local municipalities. So Cuomo is going to turn around and legislate how the judges decide your next traffic ticket and deprive you of your opportunity for justice, the common plea bargain. Do you like it so far?

abortion_setupSo we’re all appalled by the deaths caused in single incidents by single assailants killing multiple people. Are we just as appalled by the deaths by automobile or poisonings? Don’t they get any attention? OK. Every year we kill more than 1,200,000 children but do it legally. It’s done by medical doctors who make a quick buck by murdering babies. If you don’t believe that they are murdering babies, let me redirect your attention to a very informative page that tells you a little about the stages of the developing child’s life in the womb, before some licentious bitch with a  sorry excuse has some murderer in a white coat, dismember it, and the state (= YOU) pays for it. Are you pleased with yourself? Click here to read the Horror of Abortion.

Cuomo as Neo-Hitler

Neo-Hitler Cuomo

What’s even worse is that this Democrat government wants you to continue paying for this mass murder and that satan Andrew Cuomo and that devil Obama want to make it even easier to kill even full-term infants!  But Cuomo isn’t anyone’s fool, he planned to pander the women’s vote by packaging the abortion rights measure in a women’s rights package that included proposals to assure equal pay, workplace rights, and bills combating abuse against women. At this point, Cuomo has tied all the measures together, requiring the Legislature to approve all or none of the proposals.

Hitler, using the same gestures, advocated a pure race by abortions, too!

Hitler, using the same gestures, advocated a pure race by abortions, too!

Far from advocating any lunatic politician in Albany, I would like to share a statement by Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos says the proposal is just wrong. Skelos, who runs the majority with six independent Democrats, calls Cuomo’s proposal an extreme measure from the radical leftSkelos also says the change isn’t needed in New York, where abortion is legal, paid for by Medicaid, and requires no parental notification. I repeat: in New York abortion is legal, it is paid for by Medicaid, and requires no parental consent. Hell, the government takes care of it all for you!

You may want to read an article I wrote on another blog, Opinion: Abortion Issues.  As usual, it’s an in-your-face, wipe-your-nose-in-it factual statement.

And so, loyal readers, whether you agree with me or not, you do have to admit that we have some very weird and bizarre ways of thinking in order to make the world fit our lunacy. Do you feel any smarter now? Do you feel any differently now? Please say Yes!

But let me leave you with one very serious thought: The longer you stay silent, the longer you let the crazies in Albany and Washington, or even the crazies in the village or town hall, play with your rights, the more blood of innocents will be on your hands.

How dare you! With the politics and hypocrisy, the pandering and the double-talk, is it any wonder that, like Cuomo’s approval ratings, you’re hemorrhaging numbers, too?!? And don’t smirk, Protestants, Evangelicals, Fundamentalists, and Jews; you’re all just as bad, but less visible!

A Very Dirty Pot Dares to Call A Clean Kettle Black

 The RCS District’s Very Dirty Pot, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, Continues His Ridiculous Campaign of Harassment Against a Respected Board of Education Member, and It Has the Foul Smell of Retaliation.

Talking-out-ass


Stop Talking, Matt!
We know where you’re coming from!

What does our very humiliated and disgraced teachers union representative and employee of the RCS School District, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, with all of his baggage have to say about an elected community representative who has done nothing but good for the community, but who has been made to suffer attacks from the Coeymanazis, we may very well ask.

RCS high school science teacher Matt Miller has a lot of baggage and isn’t the most credible spokesperson for any organization. who are you to judgeThis article reminds readers of this shady character’s history and provides an analysis and comparison of Matt Miller’s past and why he would be well advised to lay low, stay out of sight, and shut his mouth. But he’s too stupid to realize that his attacks on others only draw more attention to him and for the worst of reasons. We can conclude that parents and residents should take a closer look at the people in sensitive positions to whom our young people are exposed, and what kind of role models they represent, what morality they are exemplifying for our developing citizens. We suggest that teachers like Matt Miller are not the best we should offer in our schools. We can and should do better.

In fact, Matt Miller shows all the signs of a drowning, desperate man, grasping at anything floating by to save himself, even at a straw. Buzz is that he’s lost all effectiveness as a representative for the teachers union, he’s lost credibility, lost face, lost support of those he’s representing. That’s true, isn’t it Matt?

Matt Miller’s most recent gaff, there have been so damned many, I’ve lost track, is an example of repeated misinformation and distortion of facts that lead to our community believing a lie to be true.

I don’t think it’s necessary to repeat the lessons on sovereignty, autonomy, legal personhood, corporation because either you know or you don’t want to know. We are all sovereign which means we all have a right to govern ourselves and make decisions that affect us. Government is created to serve the people, not the other way around. That went out when we got rid of the king. But we are living in a perverse system, still. We allow ourselves to be drowned in lies that, if told to us often enough, we believe are true. Anyone with any intelligence and guts looks at the situation and becomes angry, very angry and does what he or she can to fix at least his or her personal situation.

wolf sheeps clothesI do draw the line, however, at my representatives in Washington and the Supreme Court giving corporations legal personhood and rights that I should be enjoying. Many of you marched to the corporations’ Black Friday and Extended Black Friday drumbeat, like a bunch of rats dancing to the tunes of the Pied Piper, to interrupt your family holiday meal to rush out and trample each other to get to buy crap the corporations have told you you need, most if it Chinese, and which will likely be either broken or you’ll be told is outdated by January 2nd. Pretty soon, Congress and the Supreme Court will give my toaster the right to vote.

So, my advice to anyone, but Matt Miller, especially, is that if you want to pick on “someone” for not paying taxes, go for the biggies: the corporations, your legislators, the 1%, and stop picking on the local working man.

The result of all of this is that the sheeple run to hide behind locked doors, and the wolves are free to wander the streets, to make the rules. But there are still a few intrepid, brave hearts that venture out to kick a wolf, or at least to throw a stone. Where are the rest of you when it’s happening right here in your community?

First of all, let’s do a little review: In May 2012, a school budget was passed under suspicious circumstances, circumstances that threw the RCS community into a scandal and led to investigations and audits by the state authorities. The RCS board of education was updated and the balance of power shifted. The citizen-business group (Krzykowski, Lukens, Robbins, Sylvester, Vadney) were now in the majority and the teachers clique (Engel, Reville, Latter, Whalen), all teachers or married/closely related  to teachers, were now the minority. With more than $42 million at stake, the teachers clique and their supporters started to fight really dirty, and the misinformation and downtalking was out of control.

The entire scenario was complicated by the involvement of Matt Miller, the teachers union rep, and former Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, teacher and then superintendent, who was totally incompetent and had no control over anything, except padding her retirement check. She announced her intention to retire giving short notice and jumped ship.

The Coeymanazis, a group of loudmouthed hypocrites who lost all credibility once the voting irregularities were made the subject of public investigation, and their hyped up claims and promises could not be backed up, stood by and got desperate. They upped the ante by continuing their attacks on Mr Rodney Krzykowski, but also instigated a botched up frame up of the school board president, Mr J. Vadney, whose family was threatened and even attacked, and they spewed unsavory comments about other citizen-business boardmembers through the Times Union (a.k.a. the Times Useless) newspaper and the Times Union blogs, until they were caught using multiple phoney names to post multiple comments.

None of the Coeymanazis have any official positions, except for Matt “the Mutt” Miller, who is the RCS school district teachers union representative. Mr Miller has his own baggage to check, as you’ll see as you read on.

First of all, let’s not be mistaken regarding Mr Matt Miller. He is a teacher and he is the local representative of the New York State United Teachers (NYSUT). His interests are in protecting the rights of the teachers and promoting their interests. He has no interest as union representative in protecting your children, parents’ interests, or the community.

(We recent acquired a copy of a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) demand for disclosure of information regarding the RCS CSD energy manager position. Read the FOIL demand at FOIL Request re Matt Miller_redacted.)

Here is the NYSUT mission statement. See if you can find students, parents, community anywhere in it:

Through a representative democratic structure, New York State United Teachers improves the professional, economic and personal lives of our members and their families, strengthens the institutions in which they work, and furthers the cause of social justice through the trade union movement.

Matt "the Mutt" Miller

And Mr Miller is working a reduced teaching load (2.5 hours) and devotes the rest of his day to his union work. Mr Miller receives his full teacher’s salary ($80,000+), full benefits, professional enhancement perqs, etc. at your expense. In other words, you are paying his teacher’s salary, the majority of which is going to fund his union work. That’s like Congress funding the salaries of the Washington gun, pharmaceutical, or automobile manufacturers lobbies!

Quite frankly, I don’t really care if this arrangement is in his contract. It’s wrong. If he’s doing union work at the school, the union should be reimbursing the district for the time he spends as union rep. Or, if it’s so important to Mr Miller, maybe Mr Miller should do his union work on his own time or take personal or vacation time to do it. Or the Union should pay Miller directly. After all, the New York State Teachers Union apparently isn’t hurting for money, judging by their building at 800 Troy Schenectady Road in Latham, New York. It’s incredible!

NYSUT Building, Latham, NY.

Snatch it and Run like hell, Matt!

Which brings us to a subject near and dear to our hearts: Mr Matt Miller’s double dipping. Yes, we consider Miller to be a double-dipper. Worse still, we point to the fact that until the current RCS board of education majority put a stop to it, Miller was actually triple-dipping! Yes! Triple-dipping. Your darling Matt Miller, part-time teacher getting a full-time salary at your expense, was actually getting an additional $10,000 payment (some say as much as $18,000) a year to be district energy manager: He told people to switch off lights, for example, turn off computers, close windows when the heat was on. DUH! That was being paid for the same time Miller was (1) supposed to be teaching, (2) doing his union work, (3) playing energy manager. Triple-dipping at taxpayer expense.

(We recent acquired a copy of a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) demand for disclosure of information regarding the RCS CSD energy manager position. Read the FOIL demand at FOIL Request re Energy Manager redacted.)

One of the very first actions taken by the new majority (Krzykowski, Lukens, Robbins, Sylvester, Vadney)  on the RCS school board under president John Vadney and vice-president Mike Robbins, supported by all of the citizen-business members and opposed by all of the teachers clique, was to dump Miller and his energy manager racket. Needless to say dear Matt Miller was not a happy camper and it seems had vengeance in his bald little head: he always had something to say about parents filing grievances for injustices and abuse done to their children, now Matt Miller files a grievance against the RCS school district. But that’s not all, he launches a campain of negative statement against the district, too.

Matt Has Reason to Feel Depressed

Matt Has Reason to Feel Depressed

Well, if the teachers were doing their jobs and Matt Miller were doing his teaching for which he was being very well paid, maybe our graduation rates wouldn’t have been in the 70% range. Think about that. Maybe the teachers and the students would have had brains enough to turn off the lights, too!

Well, the citizen-business majority of the RCS board of education (Vadney, Robbins, Krzykowski, Lukens, Sylvester), after having gotten rid of Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, took the step of hiring a proven heavy-hitter, no-nonsense, superintendent, Dr Alan McCarthy, whose experience, wisdom and know-how kept the Vorheesville school district in the high 90% range in graduation rates.

The teachers clique, and especially union rep Matt Miller, saw the writing on the wall. Dr McCartney would not put up with their antics, so they went on a smear campaign, led by the teachers clique (Engel, Reville, Latter, Whalen), the Coeymanazis (led by Jerry and Cathy Deluca), and of course, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, the teachers union representative. Failed again. McCartney took control, held meetings, gave instructions, and had the mess under control and assumed command. Bravo! Dr McCartney!

Dr Alan McCartney was and is a force to be reckoned with and knows how to handle obstreperous and unruly children, even if they happen to be teachers. So it was, after a public outburst performance by Matt Miller, Miller and Dr McCartney had a “a cordial meeting of the minds,”  according to a reliable source. Our interpretation: Miller was put on notice.

Dr McCartney is preparing his justification and proposal for reinstating the 5 p.m. bus run for students who stay at school for remedial support; the justification will be  presented to the RCS Board of Education for consideration. Dr McCartney is making this important proposal by finding the funds already there–that means without it costing taxpayers more–to provide remedial help for students lagging behind (why would that be if RCS teachers are so great?), and forcing the teachers to stay and provide the remedial help. Of course, this doesn’t go over very well with the teachers, the teachers clique, the teachers union,  and least of all with Matt Miller, the district teachers union representative. Imagine that! Teachers are being held accountable for what they’re being paid to do! Added services at no additional cost to the taxpayer! The sun’s starting to shine again on RCS!

Under superintendent Elizabeth Smith, bullying and student abuse was rampant in the RCS schools, especially at the high school. We’ve already published the fact that there is evidence that teacher Matt Miller was involved in inciting acts of bullying and placing students at risk. The bullying was common knowledge, even parents were being treated with disrespect, the athletics coaches were abusing students, and the list goes on. Where were the teachers while all of this was happening? Where were the principals? Where was Elizabeth Smith? Where was Matt Miller? Yes, that’s all history now. But the disease is not cured until you cut the entire cancer out, leave a single cancer cell in the body and it can flare up again! There’s still disease in the RCS school district that needs to be excised before we can say the disease is cured.

This week an article appeared on the RCS School District website that reported on the RCS Greenhouse, Community Greenhouse Project To Benefit RCS Students in which Matt Miller is mentioned for his contribution, and of course the teachers get top billing, while the real promoters and workers are relegated to a list. Well, the record shows that one of the principal obstacles to that greenhouse was none other than Matt Miller and his gang. So what’s new. We’re still giving postive honorable mention to people who obstruct progress. Nothing new but things are changing, fast.

(By the way, I think it’s time that the articles that appear on that RCS School District website start to give names of the persons who write them. We’d like to know whose opinion we are reading. Isn’t that fair? After all it’s a public information source for community and residents and we’d like to know who’s doing the writing.)

Matt Miller is just a small fish swimming in a cesspool of bigger caprophages (shit-eaters). Here are just a couple of examples that we’ve areadly reported on but we feel you need to be reminded:

  • Coeymans supervisor Flach together with Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple has proposed a gem of a proposal for eliminating the Coeymans Police Department and replacing it with a local, professional law enforcement force provided by the Albany County Sheriff. Coeymans keeps local law enforcement but the uniforms and cars change, and the town saves about $500,000 each year in the first four years and about $750,000 in the fifth year. Anybody with half a brain would jump up and shout, “No-brainer! Yes!” But not coeymans board members Thomas “Tom” E. Dolan, Dawn Rogers, and Thomas A. Boehm, who oppose anything that might make a positive difference in Coeymans. Dolan, Rogers, and Boehm have to go! They’re losers. Say YES! to Supervisor Flach’s vision and YES! to Sheriff Apple’s offer to save us from the Coeymanazis!
  • Put the Ravena village council and mayor John Bruno on the carpet and ask what the F***K is going on with this scandalous insider wheeling and dealing with the Bruno-Deluca-Warner Memorial Fitness Center. Everything went on behind closed doors from the decision to have a fitness center after they throw the library out, to who was going to run it (Cathy Deluca), to spending on their own $40,000 of taxpayer dollars to buy used fitness equipment and transport it from the failed fitness center location to space formerly occupied by the library. You citizens had no say whatsoever in all of this and you need to ask WHY? Someone has to be held accountable for this illegal action by mayor John Bruno and his minions.
  • There’s an awful lot of croneyism, corruption, double-dealing, conflict of interest in the Ravena-Coeymans community.
You Thinking What I'm Thinking?

You Thinking What I’m Thinking?

The first thing that comes to mind is the Michael Biscone Syndrome. That’s where sonny boy follows in daddy’s corrupt footsteps and takes over everything legal and illegal in the community. That’s where law steps all over justice and the scheister tells the courts what’s to be done. It’s where Michael J. Biscone operates both as village attorney and as a private attorney in matters involving the village, submits vouchers for payment as village attorney and makes money billing privately for basically the same thing. There are a lot of Biscone vouchers in Ravena village hall that need to be audited and audited NOW!  We might want also to ask how is Biscone misusing his corrupt positioning to cash in on village resources? Take for instance a certain trailor park on property owned by Guess who? on Winnie Avenue, and a certain water line that was laid to that property owned by Guess who? And there’s more, much more than that. But if you don’t ask you’ll never know.

  • Main Street Ravena-Coeymans is fast becoming a ghost town. The ruse of leaving up business signs (Bush’s, Ledger, etc.) in front of long dead enterprises is losing its effect. I can’t help but think that instead of spending $40,000 and more on used fitness equipment the money could have been spent more wisely on some sort of promotion of the village and hamlet, perhaps to attract the interest of new enterprise. But given the record of retaliation, corruption and special-interests in this community there’s not the chance of a snowball in hell that anything is going to happen until we get the sinister plans of the Biscones, the Brunos, the Persicos, Albanos, Delucasand their Coeymanazi henchmenunder control and we take back the community. Clans like the Brunos and Biscones don’t want to share what they’ve got and don’t want to miss out on what little remains to be had. They’ll try all of their old tricks and a few new ones to suppress anything that isn’t going to benefit them. That’s the problem we have with the village idiots who serve them and the retaliation and intimidation that’s done to anyone who doesn’t bend over for them.
  • And let’s not forget that BoBo-cop phoney, Jerry Deluca and his partner in conspiracies, Cathy Deluca. There’s so much about those two characters on this blog that all you have to do is start typing their name and you’ll get literally pages of incriminating facts.

And the henchmen doing their dirty work come from the most unlikely places, like in the schools. Right, Matt Miller?

So, good people, loyal readers, it’s time to really get together and make the good things happen that are already popping up, at least in the schools where Dr McCartney and the citizen-business board members are doing great positive things. With a great leader at the help of the schools and a community-oriented majority on the board, the schools appear to be in safer hands now than ever. Now that parents and residents can trust the superintendent and the citizen-business board members to protect their children and their interests, we can now turn all of that energy that was spread everywhere and concentrate that energy on improving the RCS community overall. We can start locally and start saying positive things about our superintendent and school board members and stop tripping them up only to bruise ourselves. Start thinking in positive terms. Let’s clean up the village Of Ravena and the hamlet of Coeymans by getting to the core of the corruption. Take back the community, people!

A Country of Laws, Not Justice!

בס”ד

With the Elections Past, You May Have Been Thinking About Your “Rights”, About “Justice,” About Where This Country is Heading–You’re Disappointed, Maybe?

Are YOU Going to Vote? The Corporations and Special Interests in Washington Already Have. And Can You Guess Who Wins?

The World Is Your Mirror!

Well, let me help you: Despite what you have been led to believe, this is a country of laws, laws that can be interpreted (bent) by really anyone in power but mostly by judges you have elected, or worse still, who have been appointed by a politician. Yes, elected or appointed! I can’t think of any other country of note that has judges who run for office with the backing of a political party or are political appointments. Can you? Have you ever thought of what that means to you in terms of the justice you get, or how it affects your rights? You may think you elect them but have you chosen them? No! We’ve just gone through another embarassing presidential campaign and have been bombarded on television, radio, print media, even robocalls, all trying to influence the outcome of the presidential election, and in a couple of weeks we’ll be no better off–the politicians and the corporations will still be stealing your rights and running your life to hell! So wake up! Think about taking back your community, your country, your life!

So, back to the topic: A country of laws, not justice. Can you relate to that topic? Well, you’ll have some time to think about it because the article isn’t ready yet…stay tuned and check back later.

The first part of this multipart discussion will be about the myth of democracy and how the 1% suppresses the 99%, and it will be followed by a part on how corporations are running your community, your lives, and why they must be brought under control.

Now with more than 80,000 readers and growing every day both locally, nationally, and internationally, we can now start to make a significant difference. People are reading, people are thinking, people are acting. We are a force in that movement now.

No Public Inputs or Notice! Village Board Minutes Confirm!

We’ve Just Received The Village of Ravena’s Response to our Demand for Documents and It Appears that The Village of Ravena is Pulling Another Fast-One on Residents!

Village of Ravena Retaliating Against the RCS Community Library?

We Were Very Specific in Our Demand for Copies of Public Notices, Hearings, and Minutes and Public Comments, Both For and Against the Ravena Fitness Center, and the Names of Trustees Who Voted For and Against Spending $50-100,000 on Used Fitness Equipment.The Village of Ravena Provided only the Minutes of the Village board meeting of September 18, 2012, and was unable to provide any other documents relating to our request. What does this mean? It means that the Village of Ravena was given the opportunity to save its butt and show that it acted in good faith with the public’s trust and that it did its business in an open and transparent way, safeguaring the common good. But did the elected village trustees do that? NO!In fact, the only documents that the Village of Ravena was able to provide in response to the clearly worded request for documents was, as mentioned above, the minutes of the September 18, 2012, Ravena village board meeting, and an excuse for not being able to produce any public notices, minutes of hearings, public comments, etc. The excuse reads, “Denied: Public Notice, Hearings, Votes” Why? “Record of which this agency (the Village of Ravena) is legal custodian cannot be found.” Translation: The village of Ravena would normally have those documents but they don’t exist. What this means: The village of Ravena, the trustees of the Village of Ravena, never made any Public Notices, never held any Hearings, and never opened the question of the Fitness Center or the Spending of $50-100,000 on used fitness equipment. The trustees and mayor of Ravena apparently didn’t think the public, the voters had to know anything about the secret meetings held behind closed doors.

Flash Updates: RCS Child Abuse and RCS Retaliation

Because the Issues are So Serious and the Conduct So Appalling, We Felt It Would Be Important to Publish Updates on Two Recent Reports: RCS Child Abuse and RCS Retaliation. Here Are Recent Updates Received from Our Readers.

Which Coach’s Pix Belongs Here?

And Cathy Deluca can Get Her Fitness Center While Saying, “To Hell With the Library! It’s Their Own Fault!” (Friends of RCS and More FaceBook Site) And Cathy Deluca and Her Coeymanazi Mob Can Crucify the Board of Education for Trying to Bring Law and Order to the RCS School District. But Cathy Deluca and Her Coeymanazi Cluck Buddies Are Blind to the Child Abuse and Stupidity of the RCS Coaches and Administration! But “It’s for the kids!” Right Cathy, Clucks, Coeymanazis?

Only in
Ravena-Coeymans!

RCS Students Refused Bus Transportation Home: We received confirming information about the incidents in which at least two students were refused bus transportation home from the high school. In the one instance the student was refused transportation because he allegedly did not have a bus pass, the transportation personnel were rude to the parent who called to find out about the bus pass requirement, and the mother had to pick up the student at the school. In the second reported incident, a special ed student attempted to get on the wrong bus, was left unaided, became confused, and walk approximately two miles on Rt 9w, to get home. Both instances amount to endangering a minor, indifference to the welfare of a minor, gross negligence, and incur the civil liability, in our opinion, of the RCS school district, especially in the case of the special ed student. We’d like Jennifer Houck, RCS Transportation Director, to stand up before the next RCS board of education meeting and explain why this sort of abuse is happening!

According to our sources:

The bus pass was something used at the highschool about two years ago for the 10th period bus.  Apparently the transportation brainiacs at bus garage wanted to start it back up again for the 10th period bus this year.  Apparently, on Tuesday, September 25, some students were boarding the bus with passes and some were not.  Busdrivers were told to let them on.  When the incident happened on Thursday, September 27, when the student was refused transportation, as we have learned from reliable sources, as the student’s mother was on the phone with Darcy Hunter, a dispatcher at the bus garage, the student’s father was on the phone with the high school main office and the spokesperson at the high school told him that the bus passes hadn’t been implemented yet.  To the best of out knowledge and as confirmed by reliable sources, the bus passes are going to be fully implemented on Monday Oct 1st.  We also have information from reliable sources that the the school transportation people at the RCS bus garage are trying to pull a fast one… We have learned that on Friday September 28, drivers were all (the memo was to ALL employees!) handed a notice dated on Sept 25 stating that “Thank you for your patience with the enrichment runs, please remember that ALL students are required to give you a pass to ride the bus with a legible first and last name on it.  (The schools are supporting us on this)”  We were given this notice on Friday Sept 28th and asked to sign and date that we received it. So apparently, the student was refused transportation for no good reason! The fact that the student is the child of a member of the RCS board of education wouldn’t have been a factor in this new incident of RCS child abuse, would it? We’d like Jennifer Houck, RCS Transportation Director, to stand up before the next RCS board of education meeting and explain why this sort of abuse is happening!

The facts relating to the special ed student having to walk home are much simpler: the bus drivers and aids behaved like idiots, and the school administration fell flat on its face AGAIN, failing in its duty to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the students in their care. We think the parents of the special ed student should file a Formal Written Complaint and make a claim against the RCS District for indifference to the safety and welfare of a child, gross negligence, endangerment of a minor, etc. After all, “It’s for the kids.”

Only card-holding members get home!
But you already paid the fare!

Retaliation Against the Children of An RCS Employee. We reported on the case of the mother who was employed by the RCS school district who made a complaint against one of the RCS athletics coaches for lewd and indecent behavior in the presence of minor players. Well, she made the complaint and as soon as she returned to her workplace, she was fired on the spot. The mother had a spotless employee record but also had some very bad experiences with the RCS athletics coaches mistreatment of her children, as have other parents. Well, not only have the coaches retaliated by refusing to play her sons–they’re great athletes and not playing them certainly doesn’t say much for the coaches’ coaching nor for their morals (Pretty sad when the child knows he isn’t being played because his mother has the guts to stand up to a**holes!  Will this EVER stop?  That’s a question we should all I can ask ourselves!)

But it gets worse, still…

One of this same mother’s boys was injured on September 29, in the game and the mother had to bring him to urgent care after the game, The varsity coach, Gary Vanderzee, took a look at him and called the mother over to tell her he thought it was a “broken blood vessel” and to bring him home and ice it for the weekend and see how he is on Monday.  Initial reports from the urgent care facility are, it’s a ruptured tendon in his bicep and they did x-rays to make sure that when the tendon tore from the bone it didn’t cause a bone fracture or a bone splinter; the doctors’ instructions are to see ortho a.s.a.p. to get an MRI. The diagnosis by the professionals was that he ruptured the tendon in his left bicep.

Coach Vanderzee: “It’s just a broken blood vessel.”

Our question is: Where and when did coach Gary Vanderzee get his medical degree? Vanderzee overstepped his boundaries by making an illegal medical diagnosis which might have resulted in serious consequences for the young man who was injured, had the mother not ignored Vanderzee’s advice to “ice it for the weekend and see how he is on Monday!” (There’s something on Vanderzee we’d like to put on ice!) The arrogance and stupidity of the RCS coaches went over the top on this one, and could have had very serious consequences. Coach Gary Vanderzee, in our opinion, should be summarily disciplined and suspended for making an illegal diagnosis, providing illegal medical advice, and for endangering a minor.

The part that’s really irks the parents now is I that they have YET to get a PHONE CALL from any coach, or anyone at the school that even fakes concern about the kid, or to at least see how their child is doing!  That’s the sum total of concern of the RCS athletics coaches. It would really make good sense for someone at the high school to express some sort of concern, after all, evidence-based studies have shown that in cases of medical malpractice, settlements and money awards were considerably lower when the physician expressed regret at the mistake or showed some compassion with regard to the patient or the family. Being human and having compassion has its rewards, but RCS coaches and administrators missed that point long ago. That’s why they’re classified as Coeymanazis–they have all the care and sense of responsibility for the kids that guards at Auschwitz had for the prisoners!

Perhaps Mr Ron Racey (he’s got some skeletons in his closet, too) would like to address the parents and the RCS board of education at their next meeting on the subject of coach Gary Vanderzee’s medical expertise. There must be a policy and procedure in place at the District Offices that covers student injuries while participating in school athletics programs and events. Maybe we should check that out, too!

Gee! Racey, Vanderzee, Perrine all muster up the testosterone to back up the illegal operations of the RCS Athletic Association; we wonder why they’re so silent on the abuse that’s been reported to have been going on for years in the RCS district. Any explanatins, Ron, Gary? Anyone? Not to worry! It’ll all come out in the depositions 😉

Yet they all claim “Its for the Kids.”

Our advice to the parents: File a formal written complaint against the varsity coaches, Vanderzee, and the school district! Better fix the situation now before they cripple or kill a kid! That will be “for the kids,” too!

How Long Are You Going To Stay Stupid?
“It’s for the kids!”

Still Outstanding Business

  • Has the RCS School District Received the Paperwork Demanded from the RCS Athletic Association? If not, why are they allowed to do business on school property?
  • Has the RCS School District received any payment from the RCS Bottle Blitz for the use of school premises for collection activities led by Cathy Deluca and Lorraine Misuraca? Or are they an exception to the rules, too?
  • On what authority and in compliance with which policy did Albany Boys Academy operate a concession stand on RCS high school property, and what portion of their profits were turned over to RCS?
  • Has anyone received a response from outgoing Superintendent Elizabeth “Do Nothing” Smith regarding the requests for the number of students from the town of New Baltimore attending RCS schools (must be a dozen times this has been requested!)?

A Parent’s Plea…Help Me! My Child’s Been Bullied

Warning: We are not attorneys. We are not offering legal advice. We ae providing good faith information.
Please see the disclaimer at the end of this article.

Parents Can Come Out Kicking and Punching Now. You Don’t Have to be Afraid Anymore!
If They Retaliate, Sue Them and Take Their Jobs!

The New York State Anti-Bullying Law, the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA), Went Into Full Effect on July 1, 2012.
The Law Now Makes Teachers, Principals, Administrators, School Districts Responsible and Liable for Acts of Bullying that Take Place on School Property or in the Context of School Activities. Now, In Addition to their Civil Liabilities for the Welfare of School Children, the Law Makes the Schools Co-Liable for Bullying of Students on Students,  or Teachers, TA’s, or Coaches on Students. But It’s Up to YOU, It’s YOUR Responsibility as Parents, to be Proactive and Public in Protecting Your Children!

Make the School District Accountable
It’s the Law Now!

We just received another request from a concerned RCS parent with a child or children in the RCS schools who writes [names redacted to protect the individual’s identity and to ensure confidentiality]:


The Parent’s Plea:

“Hello Im another concerned parent of RCS children …I was hoping you assist me. Simply what I am Looking for is…What lawyer is representing the [redacted] family in their suit against the RCS district? I ask since I am in the process of seeking my own legal advice for bullying. If you don’t know or feel uncomfortable disclosing that information hopefully you can suggest an attorney who isn’t so-called “corrupted”.
“Also would you be able to direct me to any other possible resources out there that may be able to help me?
“I have followed the “chain of command” regarding the bullying since October 2011, teacher- guidance – principal – superintendent – CSE – teacher- principal -superintendent &  recently a email to the board (no replies to the email).
“Simply put .. I’m at a large brick wall of a dead end- and need direction, to insure the safety of my child.”


Our Response:

Your original message was forwarded to us by one of our contributors whom you contacted with your request but did not have the information you needed. We hope we can offer you some help in this response.

No child deserves to be hurt socially, emotionally or psychologically, least of all in our schools!

First of all, any concerned parent would be well advised to seek out other concerned parents and to join together to seek representation as a group. First of all, a group has more backbone to pursue such a campaign, there’s “power in numbers.” Secondly, in a group, you can all share your experiences and establish a pattern of abuse and indifference by the administration, essential probative items for a good case. Thirdly, in a group you can share not only stories but also expenses. Getting individual representation might be difficult but if a group of you approach an attorney, s/he’ll have a better feel for the situation and can put together a better strategy. Fourthly, the District would be more intimidated and more prone to settle if confronted by a group of parents represented by an attorney who is ready to kick ass.

One of the problems you parents who contact us have is that you say you want to protect your children but are willing only to go half way. You want to do what you’ve been doing for years–not only you but so many others–creeping around in the shadows, trying to stay invisible, yet saying you want to stop the bullying or solve the problems. But you’ve got to stand up and come out into the light to do that.

You parents are not going to get anything done by skulking around in the shadows, not wanting your names mentioned, not wanting to tell your stories to the public, wanting to assert your rights but wanting also for someone else to carry the load for you. Sorry, that doesn’t work.

Individually, your lovely school district is going to eat you up one-by-one when you come with your complaint. You think your tax dollars are going to the children in your schools, do you? Just wait until you have an issue with the school district, that same school district who is always telling the voters, “We’re here for the kids.” But not your kids. You may have already experienced how concerned they are for the kids: did you get any response to your complaints or inquiries about the incidents you are talking about? Probably not. The RCS CSD turns into an entirely different animal when it comes to having to deal with a problem, especially when it might make them look bad. And it’s an ugly beast when it comes to responding to a complaint about a child’s welfare in the schools; that really makes them look bad. Don’t you think you should be telling the world about that?

It’s usually very unlikely that the District will respond to e-mails, they’re too dangerous. But what I do and always suggest first and foremost is that you document everything in writing in a notebook or some other way as soon as possible after an event or incident or contact. That’s very important when it comes to evidence and any hearings or court appearances. If it’s written down as soon as possible after it happens it’s 1000x better than plain old memory. Second, put all your requests into letter form, clearly stating the problem (no emotions, just the facts, please), times, dates, names, and what you want answered. Always include a reasonable request for something to be done that will make you happy or satisfy you. Then mail it to the school principal, the RCS CSD superintendent, and to the president of the board of education. Send the copy to the RCS CSD superintendent by certified mail, return receipt requested. Then you have proof you made the inquiry, proof they received it, and then proof they didn’t bother to respond.

As for sharing information about someone else’s representation or case, I’m afraid I”m not in the position to to do that. But what I would suggest is that you call the individual or drop by that individual’s home, they’re very welcoming and helpful, and talk to them about your needs and concerns. Talking directly to persons with similar problems is immensely helpful and healing. It’s worked well with many types of problems.

If you still want to go at it alone, I would suggest you contact the New York State Bar Association Lawyer Referral and Information Service at 1 (800) 342-3661 lr@nysba.org, or Department for Children, Youth and Families Programs & Services at the Child Protective Services (CPS) Hotline: 1 (800) 342-3720, tell them what you need, a ask for a recommendation for assistance in moving forward with your case.

I’d also suggest that you get out of that Democrat cesspool of political party machinery and give Pete Lopez, your NYS Assemblyman for the 127nd Assembly District (but running for the newly formed 102nd district that includes Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk, New Baltimore are part of his district), tell him about the problems you’re having, about the response you’re getting from the District, ask for his help. Tell him this bullying problem is big here and obviously big everywhere if the legislatures of a large number of states have actually passed laws like the the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA),  New York’s “Dignity Act“! That’s why he’s there. Besides, if you hadn’t already heard, it’s an election year and the candidates will be chomping at the bit for sensitive issues to toy with.” In fact, call everyone who’s running and not part of the local political machine (that would exclude Tom Dolan who has done NOTHING with regard to helping parents with the bullying problem–he’s part of the political gang that’s part of the problem!). And you haven’t heard a peep out of the Delucas, the Bartletts, the Whalens, Engels, Revilles, Latters, Misuracas, Leput-Hommels or any of the other Coeymanazi bunch about the bullying problem. Of course not! They’re part of the system and you don’t buck your own system. And besides, they’re all out doing something ultra-important: collecting bottles. Do you get it? If it’s easy and gets them brownie points they’ll do it; if it involves getting their hands dirty and being prophets, Forget it! Just give them glory and they’ll love you for it but don’t expect much in return.

So, what I’d recommend first of all is to find like-minded allies, especially parents whose children were bullied in the past and may have graduated or left the RCS school district. They may be very willing to step out with you. Then, contact parents with children still in the RCS school district and get together, explaining how important it is to join up and step out. You’ll get nothing done if you and others like you keep hiding. You’ll never be able to say that you actually did sometihing to protect your children and some day they might actually ask you, “Why didn’t you, mom, dad? What will you answer?

Of course I will respect your request to keep our conversations private but I would also ask you to please continue to keep us updated on what you are doing and how it’s working for you. It helps us to help others in your situation or in similar situations to know how our advice is working for them.

Good luck!

Teacher- and Coach-on-Student Bully

Keep in mind the types of bullying that go on in our schools includes student-on-student, teacher-on-student, coach-on-student (sometimes even teacher-on-teacher, and student-on-teacher, believe it or not)! We can talk about various types of bullying that often appear simultaneously:

  • Physical: pushing, kicking, assault with objects, etc. It occurs more frequently in primary than in secondary. But don’t be led astray by this generalization, as student’s get older, physical abuse becomes more covert, more calculated, more dangerous and symptomatic of bigger problems ahead! Research shows that bully teachers and coaches have a history of being bullied. There’s also evidence of a bullied-connection withviolent, sociopathic behavior in adults.
  • Verbal abuse and name-calling, slurs in public, highlighting physical defects, etc.. It is the most common and can leave very deep scars. Words do harm and harm deeply.  Teachers be especially aware of this in yourselves.
  • Psychological: undermine the individual’s self-esteem and foster their sense of fear. The psychological harm is really a common feature of any bullying but it is a standalone form of bullying, too.
  • Social: attempts to isolate the members of other groups, or to exclude certain persons or classmate as members of a group. Scarring. Can produce problems further down the road in the young adult and the mature adult (true for all of the bullying types!).

So, In Summary, Our Advice Is:

  • You need to be parents to your children. That’s more than just providing them with a cellphone, junk food, and a ride to the mall! You need to be a positive role model, a source of nurture and protection. Not a friend, a parent!
  • Have open, honest dialogue with your children about the reality of bullying and that there is a law against it.
  • Encourage your children to bring their concerns to you immediately, not to wait, not to be afraid.
  • Get names of other children who have been bullied (your own children will probably be the best sources for this information, believe it or not). Kids see and hear a lot at the school and that makes them great sources of information. Contact the parents of other children who have been bullied or abused in your district. Get together to form an action committee. There’s power in numbers and the more people you have with similar experiences, the more credible your own case. This will become very important later at hearings or in court!
  • Document all incidents, conversations, contacts, etc. in a written record with dates, times, incendent description, names of those involved, names of those contacted, outcome (always with dates and times!).
  • Confront principals, administrators, superintendent, board of education immediately with your concerns. Don’t wait! They’ll use that against you! And do it in writing(not by e-mail), and what you expect to be done to fix the situation. The best way is a copy of the letter of notice or inquiry to each of the levels (principal, administrators, superintendent, BoE) with the copy to the superintent by certified mail, return receipt requested. Remember: Stick to the facts, admit nothing, don’t get emotional, assume you are always the victim! Don’t let them use anything against you later! Don’t believe any promises! Get it in writing!
  • Follow up on each of your inquiries or complaints by telephone call (note date, time, who spoken to, and substance of the call), and then with a written confirmation of the follow-up and brief details of the conversation. Send a copy to the other party and to the superintendent.
  • If you still don’t get a response. Contact the local police, make a complaint. Send a copy of the complaint to the Albany County District Attorney’s Office referring to the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA), send a copy to your Assemblyman and to your state Senator. Do this by regular mail, not by e-mail. You can follow up or confirm by e-mail and attach a scanned copy of the hard copy letter or complaint.
  • Contact the  New York State Bar Association Lawyer Referral and Information Service at 1 (800) 342-3661 lr@nysba.org for a referral to an attorney specializing in lawsuits against school districts, even specializing in cases under the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA). Under the law you are entitled to an initial free consultation with an attorney. If s/she decides to take the case, get him or her to provide you with a written letter of representation that states the approximate cost of the case in fees etc. and the approximate length of time s/he expects the case to take to resolution. Do not ask for promises that you will win; that’s unreasonable.
  • From that point on, let the attorney do his/her magic, but follow-up regularly, never trust or think that they’re on top of it, they’re probably not and will likely need some high-voltage prodding to get them to move their asses. Stay out of the way but stay informed!
  • Be  active! Be very active! It’s your children at risk, not theirs. Your children will thank you some day…or curse you if you’don’t act now!

Not on my lawn and
DEFINITELY NOT ON MY KIDS!
